A CHILD was gagged, whipped, and tied up while she was made to act out "sexual fantasies" for groups of men, the Old Bailey heard this morning.

A young woman, giving evidence at the Oxford sex exploitation trial, said she was driven to High Wycombe up to three times a week to have sex with up to seven men.

She was also abused with "toys" and gang raped, the jury heard.

Known as Girl 4 as she cannot be named, she said: "Anything from biting, pulling. I have had candle wax poured on me.

"I have been horse-whipped, I have been cuffed, and I have been tied with a shirt tie."

The witness claims she was raped and sold for sex by brothers Mohammed and Bassam Karrar between the ages of 11 and 15.

When prosecutor Noel Lucas asked her why she did what Mohammed Karrar asked, she said: "Forgive me, I feel stupid.

"At the time I believed he loved me. I was hoping he loved me I suppose."

The woman said if she refused to have sex with men Mohammed Karrar would get "mad".

She said: "I would get slapped. I would get kicked or sometimes I would have a pillow over my face."

The teenager said when she refused to "play" with a "fat greaseball" in a Boars Hill wood, Mohammed Karrar went "absolutely ballistic".

She told the jury: "He said do you know how much you have cost me?

"He hit me and said now look what you have made me do?

"He full-on smashed my face in."

The court heard how, when aged 12, the witness was taken to an Oxford flat and Mohammed Karrar put "toys" inside he and told her he was "preparing" her.

Later she was raped by at least five men on a kitchen table, the jury heard.

She cried as she told the court in video link: "I just wanted it to stop."

She said she was abused at hotels, house, and a "closed down shop" in High Wycombe.

All nine defendants deny the 51 counts against them.

The trial continues.
